In May 2022, Elisa’s mother noticed that she had a slightly swollen abdomen and decided to take her to the hospital, even though she had no other symptoms or complaints. On examination, the doctor immediately found a malignant tumor of approximately 12cm near Elisa’s liver. Just days later, Elisa started chemotherapy and later underwent surgery to remove the tumor.
Upon waking up from one of the chemo sessions, Elisa commented to her mother: “I already know what my wish is! I want to be a model and walk the catwalk!” From there Elisa’s wish team worked to provide Elisa with an unforgettable and transformative experience.
This Childhood Cancer Awareness Month, we need you to help us make every wish come true just like Elisa’s. Please donate today.
